camp and kittens 0001

On the way to pick up Olivia for camp, Todd and I had to notice when we saw this van in front of us at a red light.

Todd grabbed my camera and took this picture!

Every time I read the words on this van’s window, I am struck with the reality that no matter how hard we try, “Perfection…..or Perefection” just isn’t within reach while we walk on this earth.

I’m so thankful that PERFECTION came…….

not on the back of a mini-van

through a carpet cleaning business


in a manger

through an ordinary girl with an extraordinary calling.

And I’m thankful that one day PERFECTION will come again!

Right now we have faith, hope, and love…

But on the day that PERFECTION returns, the greatest of these (LOVE) is all we will  need!

No more need for faith or hope once we’re standing face to face with


Until then, I’ll be content with faith, hope, and love…and the world’s idea of perfection……. “perefection” is as close as it gets.

1 Corinthians 13:9-13

For we know in part and we prophesy in part, but when perfection comes, the imperfect disappears. When I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I put childish ways behind me.

Now we see but a poor reflection as in a mirror; then we shall see face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I am fully known.

And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.
